The career of Josh Cribbs could be coming to a conclusion. At a minimum, his time in Oakland appears to be up.
Per a league source, Cribbs is currently getting his knee checked by physicians as the Raiders plan to move on from the eight-year veteran.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network has reported that the Raiders will cut Cribbs. Depending on the extent of the injury, they may have to put him on injured reserve or agree to terms on an injury settlement. A grievance could be filed to determine how much salary Cribbs should be paid — a question that will be driven by when he is expected to return to 100 percent.
The injured knee isn’t the knee that kept him on the market for an extended period after his contract with the Browns expired.
For now, it’s unknown what the Raiders will do until an assessment of the knee is completed. It appears that, at a minimum, Cribbs’ time with Oakland is over. The only question is whether he gets cut or placed or IR or receives an injury settlement or files a grievance.
